Blog Candy & Butterflies!!!

Today is Day Two of our Sneak Peeks for Susana's Custom Art & Card Design - yay... but what happened to Day One?  Ooooops!  I am hanging my head in embarrassment : (  If you missed it, you can see the FABULOUS work my SCACD sisters, Danni, Donalda and Alex created on their blogs or at Follow Your Heart *Here.*  While you're at the Store Blog, you'll also find details about entering some of the yummiest CANDY around!!!

Today, we have three SCACD designers showcasing some fabulous new stamps!  Here's my sneak peek...  It's my current fave stamp!!!  Butterfly Dreams by Carmen Medlin for SCACD.

She's a total stunner, don't you think?  I love her pretty face, her flowing hair, her beautiful butterfly dress, and the fact that she's surrounded by the beauty of nature...including butterflies, of course!

I've used copics to color her:  BG09 BG07 BG05 BG02 BG01 BG000; E35 E34 YR21 YR20; E11 E00 E000 R20; R35 R30; G28 G24 G21 G20.  For shine in her eyes, I normally use Diamond Glaze, but this time I used Transparent Gloss Gel.  I think it works better for eyes because it's thicker and easier to use in very small areas!

I must have some bling you know... so I gave the golden areas of the butterflies and her dress a couple coats of Gold Glitz Glamour Dust Paint.  It dries quickly and is easy to spot paint even in detailed areas.  Oh how I LOVE Glamour Dust Paint!!!

Papers are BoBunny Welcome Home Collection (15% off right now!).  There are lots of gorgeous gorgeous papers in this collection!  Did I say gorgeous?  hee hee...  The beautiful lace is from my sweet friend, Tammy ♥♥♥, MS butterfly punch with gold pearls added to the body (you can find Gold Rhinestones *Here*) and for the final touch, Gold Pearl Pen pearls in the corners.

CLP Sketch Challenge!!!
Oh... the sketch!  I almost forgot!!!  This is CLP Sketch Challenge #42 by the oh-so-talented Chelsea.  I love love love her sketches!!!  I hope that you are able to play along.  You have until the end of November to join in the fun!
